As part of its 44-page strategy plan, the Biden administration is requiring the Food and Drug Administration, the FDA, to come up with a food labeling system which is consumer friendly and will help people make better choices as it relates to building a healthy, nutritional diet.  The move will help consumers who rank low on nutrition literacy, to quickly and easily identify better food choices.  The label can use graphic images like star ratings or traffic lights to make the new system easily understandable. The policy is designed with two goals in mind.  The first is to help consumers understand what is right and what is wrong with a product.  The second is to encourage packaged food manufacturers to make more nutritious products.
